West Ham confirm squad

West Ham's January signings Marco Borriello, Antonio Nocerino, Roger Johnson and Pablo Armero have been included in their 25-man Premier League squad.

The Hammers have confirmed the players who will be available to Sam Allardyce for the final four months of the campaign as the club battles against relegation.

The likes of Ravel Morrison and Abdul Razak are available but do not need to be listed as Under-21 players can be selected on top of the original 25-man party.

Allardyce's party has nine players who are not regarded as Home Grown, which is comfortably within the Premier League's parameters of 17.

West Ham are currently 18th in the table after 24 games of the season, but are just one point from a position of safety and only three adrift of Stoke in 11th place.
